Umme Ahmed Shishir was allegedly harassed at the Mirpur National Cricket Stadium gallery on June 15 during a match against India, bdnews24.com reported.
Shakib filed a case the following day with Mirpur police.
Mirpur police Sub-Inspector Md. Rasel said they had arrested one Rahid, 23, son of businessman Bazlur Rahman, from his Banani residence in the early hours of Thursday.
Rahid is one of the accused in the case filed by Shakib, he said.
"We are looking for several others based on the description given by Shakib," Rasel, who is investigating the case, said.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) security staff had beaten up several of the harassers on the day when the game was halted due to rain.
Witnesses said Shakib, too, had joined the BCB staff in the beating.
